Episode Summary

iMessage is the new messaging service for IOS5. Daddy Clay discusses the various parental controls available for the iPhone. Telematics from AT&T and the iPhone itself allow for text limits, voice limits, web access, including YouTube, and email among others. These work great in combination... until you add iMessage to the mix. Because iMessage is a wireless and IOS5 operating system based application, it essentially bypasses AT&T parental controls. iMessage is also not in the restrictions panel, so while you can turn it off, it is not pass coded. Your child can simply turn it back on. If that wasn't bad enough, iMessage conversations happen on all of your shared devices at the same time. So, your iMessage chat on your iPhone, will show up on the iPad your child is using. (And their conversations will also appear on your device.) Daddy Clay illustrates a real life mishap with iMessage communications, and the difficulty of exerting control over this new service, as well as the simple solution, that has to come from Apple. Episode #841 is brought to you by BabyBjorn.moreless
